This is a fully up-to-date, practical guide to foundation engineering. Revised to cover the 2009 International Building Code, "Foundation Engineering Handbook, Second Edition" presents basic geotechnical field and laboratory studies, such as subsurface exploration and laboratory testing of soil, rock, and groundwater samples. This book then discusses the geotechnical aspects of foundation engineering, including conditions commonly encountered by design engineers - settlement, expansive soil, and slope stability. Details on the performance or engineering evaluation of foundation construction and the application of the 2009 International Building Code are included in this valuable resource. "Foundation Engineering Handbook 2nd edition" covers: subsurface exploration; laboratory testing; soil mechanics; shallow and deep foundations; bearing capacity and settlement of foundations; foundations on expansive soil; slope stability; retaining walls; foundation deterioration and cracking; geotechnical earthquake engineering for soils, foundations, and retaining walls; grading and other soil improvement methods; foundation excavation, underpinning, and field load tests; geosynthetics and instrumentation; and, 2009 International Building Code regulations for soils and foundations.
